Classic Alpaca Yarn
The Alpaca Yarn Company's Classic Alpaca yarn has dozens of colors to inspire you. Their most popular 100% alpaca hand knitting yarn is a DK weight that is ideal for sweaters, afghans, hats, scarves and many other projects. Classic Alpaca is great for felting too. Each 50 gm skein is approximately 110 yards. The gauge = 22 st / 4" (5.5 st/1") using US #6 (4.0mm) needles. Alpaca fiber is hypo-allergenic. That means that people with wool sensitivities can wear it. Alpaca is a hollow core fiber so it keeps you warmer than wool when you need to be warm, but breathes when you need to be cool. Alpaca fiber can be as fine as cashmere.
